Story

I need to raise £2000 for an aquarium for stimulation for my 11month old grandson Lawrence. Lawrence was born with hearing loss and has to wear hearing aids in both ears, also he has cataracts in both eyes limiting his vision. Tests and MRI scans have shown that he had a stroke whilst still in his mothers womb and this was the cause of his disabilities. And showed that Lawrence has permanent damage to his optic nerves and also his hearing nerves and there is no treatment to help. He will be disabled for life. Lawrence is a lovely little boy and he loves to look at fish in aquariums and gets very excited to see them. I am unable to fund this for him as I was retired early in 2013 from the NHS due to suffering a stroke myself and now can only work part time at my local church. Lawrence needs visual stimulation to help with his vision. He also has other developmental issues as his muscle co-ordination and strength have been affected and he has regular tests which are also checking for other problems and they have found that he has a high risk of epilepsy and life long mobility issues. Can anyone please, please help me to provide some pleasure for this little chap. Thank you for taking the time to read this and maybe you can help Lawrence.

my little grandson Lawrence was born last year and was found to visual and hearing impairments caused when he had a stroke in his mums womb. I want to raise money to provide him with a big aquarium to house large fish that he can see and give him some joy that he so deserves.
